Lego has won another case against imitators in China where copies of its colorful plastic toy bricks and figures have been a recurring problem, the Danish toymaker said.

In a landmark case last year, Lego for the first time succeeded in a copyright competition case in China where it seeks a bigger slice of the $31 billion toys and games market.

"We believe these decisions are well-founded in the facts and the law, and clearly demonstrate the continued efforts of Chinese authorities to protect intellectual property," Lego Chief Executive Niels B. Christiansen said in a statement Monday.
